Cowboys roster move: Dallas adding WR Cyril Grayson to the practice squad

Roster construction is a 24/7/365 business.

We may be nearing the end of the regular season but that does not mean that the Dallas Cowboys aren’t still tinkering with their roster. Unfortunately the Cowboys are in need of a wide receiver due to Cedrick Wilson getting hurt last week in loss at Chicago. Dallas has gone ahead and brought in a new wide receiver, one they’ve added to the practice squad. Say hello to Cyril Grayson.

Grayson has yet to see any legitimate NFL action and he’s bounced around a lot recently. The Cowboys are down Cedrick Wilson and seemingly always seeing Amari Cooper deal with something, it can never hurt to have another receiver around.

Grayson did ran track at LSU. He is literally one of the greatest track stars that that program has ever seen.

One of the most decorated relay runners in the history of the LSU Track & Field program ... Ended his career as a four-time NCAA Champion and seven-time All-American between the indoor and outdoor seasons from 2013-16 ... Member of two NCAA Indoor Champion relay teams in 2014 and 2016 and back-to-back NCAA Outdoor Champion relay teams in 2015 and 2016 ... Ran on four of the 10-fastest outdoor mile relay teams in school history, including No. 2 at 3 minutes, 0.38 seconds; No. 3 at 3:00.48; No. 4 at 3:00.69 and No. 10 at 3:01.63 ... Also a member of five of the seven-fastest indoor 4x400-meter relay teams in the program’s history, including No. 2 at 3:04.04, No. 3 at 3:04.28, No. 5 at 3:04.46, No. 6 at 3:04.54 and No. 7 at 3:04.60 ... A three-time qualifier for the 400 meters at the NCAA East Preliminary Rounds ... Ran personal bests of 46.51 indoors and 45.91 outdoors in the 400 meters during his collegiate career.

Hopefully that speed translates on to the football field!
